Prawns

Technically, the term prawn is synonymous with shrimp. But it is common practice on restaurant menus to call the crustaceans prawns if they are large – like, maybe 4 or 6 to an order – and to call them shrimp if they are served by the dozen. The only reason for this is that the word shrimp is a colloquialism for “small.”
